If the election was held today

Simple answer, McCain or Obama?

If you don't want to make you answer public you don't have to. The poll results are private.

Re: If the election was held today

Good thread. I'd been debating putting this up as well (although I was going to make it public and offer up a "haven't decided yet" option as well).

We should refresh the poll after each debate and see if opinion changes.

I haven't done an Understanding the Issues thread lately, but I did notice about a month ago that it was fairly evenly split among Warpathians whether they thought McCain or Obama had the right idea/plan on various issues.

Re: If the election was held today

Can you truly be undecided at this point? I suppose if you haven't been paying attention at all it makes sense but if you have been I don't know how one could still be undecided.

Re: If the election was held today

I am, to me there is pros/cons on both sides. I am far from clueless on all this, just haven't made my final decision.

Re: If the election was held today

Yeah, what about third party choices?

For me, it's either Bob Barr or Chuck Baldwin.

I agree. Its definitely the Sarah Palin Show and McCain is just the dude in the back doing makeup and set design.

I'd vote for Obama, only because I've been on his bandwagon and following his coverage religiously since day one.

But I must admit at this rate, everyone sucks. Obama can't say something without it being borderline controversial and McCain won't say anything at all (and take the main reigns from Palin) and she can't keep her mouth shut and let McCain do what he's supposed to be doing.. Running from president. Remember that?

Ugh. November please come!

McCain of course.

I hear they've had to send search and rescue to look for Biden. Now you know what I meant by "YAWN" SmootSmack. The rumours now are that he will develop some health issue and Obama will bring Hillary (and Bill) on board to try and save his bacon, as it were.

I'm voting for Obama. This will be the first time in 724Skinsfan's history that he has ever voted in any election, including high school student body.

Re: If the election was held today

McCain.

- Obama's healthcare plan, while noble, has no chance of getting put in place. Sometimes reality has to trump vision.

- Obama's platform for bringing the troops home from Iraq now is kind of losing steam, given that Bush and Petraeus have started setting the stage for pulling troops out.

- I'd rather have McCain in charge of our military than Obama.

- I'm in danger of getting hit by the alternative minimum tax sometime within this upcoming presidential term, and McCain is the only one suggesting we do away with it. That will mean a difference of several thousand bucks a year for me and my family. And yes, at least a portion of everyone's vote is selfish!

- Alternative energy is great and should be pursued, but I see no reason why we shouldn't use our own petroleum resources immediately. Drilling now makes sense, in conjunction with the search for other energy sources. It's not like drilling precludes us from also investing in other sources.

- McCain's economic and tax ideas make more sense. History shows tax revenue collected by the federal government is generally higher when policies similar to McCain's are put in place.

- Obama wants to stop jobs from being shifted overseas, yet he wants to raise taxes on businesses. Um, hello. The reason companies ship the jobs overseas in the first place is because the labor costs are way cheaper. If you increase taxes on them here in this country you're just adding more weight to that burden. You're actually incenting them to headquarter themselves elsewhere.

Re: If the election was held today

Speaking of polls, here's some news on swing states. Obama is taking a lead in New Hampshire and Michigan while McCain is moving ahead in Virginia and Missouri.
